The entrance walls on the Plaza level of the GRI are scheduled to be painted this Friday, 5/1. While this work will be taking place only on the Plaza level, there is a chance that the paint smells could travel to other parts of the building. Because of this, anyone who is sensitive to fumes should avoid the area or consider visiting the library on another day.
